We stopped to see how Batik was made and was quite impressed with the women that were painting the batik or weaving the material. The manufacturing area was outside once you got into the sales area, they would not let you take pictures. I found some of the designs to be very intricate and interesting. Upstairs they had material displayed... More

Although the batik was handmade and took a lot of effort I thought it was a little overpriced. Bought cushion covers at $50 ea and sarongs around $35. Nice but similar items at markets.

Great to see the process involved in how they make the clothing. The time spent making just one dress is amazing. Really well worth a look

I was awed to see the process of making batik. Really admirable how they do the intricate design b hands. There's a shop where you can buy a lot of their produce (bags, dresses, blankets and more) but I spent most of my time watching and taking photos of how batik is made. Some of my shots can be viewed... More

RIght away I knew they give commissions to all the guides that bring in tourists to this place. Large selection of products available but prices are high and non negotiable. Sales clerk are not...

If you're not the batik kind of person, then this place is not for you. Neither am I as I'm from Malaysia and can get better batik from Terengganu any day at all with much better designs and on silk. We wear them to work. Actually the designs on the modern Bali batiks are deliberately flippant in order to cater... More

Watching how batik is produced is very interesting and it gives you a real appreciation for the talent it requires and the many hours involved. After seeing how batik is made make your way in their large store and buy some batik for... More

While it was very interesting to see how they made the Sarongs traditionally & how talented the ladies were at painting the fabric, nothing really appealed to me inside.
